killed in newtown, connecticut, an event so gruesome it has already forced a change in this nation's gun policy. as we first reported here last night, today president obama came out with his proposals for the most sweeping gun control measures in many years. the national rifle association launched a preemptive strike against it. it involved the president's family, in part. but this time they may have some formidable opposition to their position. it's where we begin our reporting tonight with our chief white house correspondent, chuck todd. chuck, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. this was no ordinary policy rollout. we have seen the president do this on a number of issues. this one was filled with an emotional plea, if you will. in fact, the president spent more time trying to drum up support for a campaign using emotion than he did talking about his actual plans themselves. an emotional president obama unveiled his plan in front of an audience that included parents of newtown victims. >> she dreamed of becoming a painter. chris, her father, gave me one of her

did the families from newtown. i think having people like her being a part of this conversation, it only adds to the pressure on republicans to give something. i think the only outcome that seems impossible is that absolutely nothing would be done. because you have a con fluance of events. you add the outrage of it happening to children, so i can't imagine that nothing would be done. >> we see wayne lapierre in that group of people. i think as i was giving this some thought this morning, because we've talked so much about why nothing changed after gabby giffords was shot. she sadly could not be a voice in the immediate aftermath but her husband helped to start americans for responsible solutions and she's out there speaking as well. it does seem to be a change in the landscape, doesn't it, nick? >> having the personal voice and victim of gun violence makes a huge difference. we saw that with brady in the '80s so it does make a difference. on the other hand, i don't want to shock viewers back home. but the hearings are this elaborate ka bookie where everyone knows what they are going

newtown, connecticut. the people of america said how could this happen? how could this happen to our children? over the last few weeks, as we try to define how we can work together, it has been frustrating, but i still have great hope. to be honest with you, i do not trust them to be there for the tough votes. that is why all of us in the president, by the way, the vice president, president vice president biden, and those of us are fighting for this are going to spread the word to the corners of the country. nra members have been speaking out to get something done. these are good law-abiding citizens who want to hunt. they want to go duck hunting. and the guns that they use only allow three bullets. deer hunting depending on what state you are in allow five bullets. most hunters will tell you if you don't get it on the first try, you probably won't get it on the second one. yet we have these machines. we have a large magazines. they can take down 20 children in seconds. the only reason is that our first responders were there and the killer ended up taking his own life. some peopl

newtown cannot walk into a school and gun down a bunch of children. i'm confident there are steps we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. lou: his authority as president. do you remember when the constitution once defined the president's powers and not the president himself? all of this transpiring as left-wing advocacy groups, democratic politicians, and the liberal national media are clearly coordinated and committed to accomplishing prisely what president obama says they are not doing, that is, taking away our guns. mainstream liberal media abandoned any pretense of objectivity in their campaign to , well, shred the second amendment. for example, listen, if you will, to nbc nightly news anchor brian williams go all rachael matter now what his audience, repeatedly referring to a post newtown era of gun-control. >> now we turn to gun control in our post newtown era. the white house is gearing up for a fight of this issue. it is all in advance of the administration's push for new gun laws and the post newtown era. lou: msn bcf shultz

we saw in newtown connecticut. we need a comprehensive approach. obviously it will include some gun safety, perhaps assault weapon ban but a ban on high-capacity magazines background checks, many of the gun transfers today are without any background check at all. purchases for somebody with a clean record might purchase for someone else, can't pass a background check. then you have mental health. most of the shooters in these mass killings have what seem to be fairly obvious but untreated mental health challenges. improving mental health services. crime prevention generally. we know a lot of things that can reduce violent crime. the youth promise act i've introduced is an initiative to get young people in the right track and keep them on the right track rather than wait for them to drop out of school, join a gang, mess up, get caught and get caught in a bidding war and how much time they're going to spend, if you spend some of up-front, they wouldn't get in trouble to begin with. early identification, just like the attorney general's report, he had a blue ribbon committee that repor
